    So he isn't mine...but I wanted to share :)

    I went to buy a fish at Petco today, he's a VT male Betta. He isn't mine, but my friend was upset that her Betta of 4 years died. We are exchanging gifts this year and I was a bit tight on money, since she has all of the stuff, I asked her first if it was okay if I bought her one of these little dudes. She got REALLY excited and LOVED the idea. She wouldn't have cared if I had made her just a card but I like being a little more personal. He will have a nice filtered, heated tank, so he's going to a good home. But I am surprising her with a pretty color! We're actually leaving soon. Mr. Fish has been here for about 4 hours and I already want to keep him for my own tank. But I have Bo II to take care of, and I am getting Fancy Guppies (I'll update you guys on that when I actually get them) but this was to cute to pass up

    I swear when I was younger they never had white-finned or white bettas. I absolutely love the morph, pattern, or whatever it is! It's gorgeous. The elephant eared ones are pricey though.

    He was quite the looker and she was very happy with him overall He loved his new tank. I was originally getting Fancy Guppies, but I kind of found a unique Betta instead and I haven't had one in 5 years so I decided to get him instead of the guppies. I can still keep Cory Cats with a Betta. I still have my feeder Guppy Bo II, so I was kind of worried about how they would get along, but they don't care about each other at all. They even swim together at times. He's from Petco. So far I am very happy with him. He's got a very cute personality. He is yellow and black with blue flecks. I think I am going to name him Buzz, because he is bee colored He's happily swimming around his 10 gallon!
